Want a mix of secluded, shady streets and all the modern conveniences? Uptown is the spot! A brand-new shopping center can be found here with a beautiful movie theater, hospital, shopping outlets, and several chains and independent restaurants. Madrona Links Golf Course is a wonderful local golf course and nearby is Performance Golf that offers a driving range, mini golf, and hosts Fox Island Brewing!
Gig Harbor is a refreshing escape from the metropolitan, however, it does provide a link to the rest of the world by means of the Tacoma Narrows Airport. Take some time to have lunch at the Hub located right on the tarmac to enjoy a local IPA and watch the private planes land and take off.
To really enjoy how far away and yet how close Gig Harbor is, take a drive down to Tacoma Narrows Park. Walk the beach and take in the view of the Narrows Bridge. Brave souls enjoy diving here, and the locals have been known to cast their fishing lines, jigging for squid and other tasty saltwater treats.
The Cushman trail starts near the bridge and can be used by all pedestrian traffic. The trail is completely paved and well maintained with benches well dispersed for a rest along the way. Gorgeous new homes can be spotted in the Magnolia Heights neighborhood and condos with expertly manicured lawns and large picture windows facing the Narrows and Mt Rainier line Narrows View Circle.
Head towards Artondale and cross the bridge to Fox Island to see why people for over a century have been choosing this area to live in. Quiet wooded streets, unobstructed views of the water and mountain can be found everywhere. Don’t forget to stop at the Gig Harbor Farmers Market on Wollochet to sample local delicacies.
